MOSCOW, January 14 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Interior Ministry has launched a multimedia website, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev announced on Monday, January 14.
“Today we are launching a revamped version of the Interior Ministry’s official website, which includes all official sites of interior bodies,” the minister said.
Kolokoltsev stressed that the new site has become a multimedia one. “I am convinced that this will allow us to give more information and faster and make our interaction with you more effective,” he said.
The minister congratulated mass media members on Russian Press Day marked on January 13 and noted that it is important for the Interior Ministry that mass media stick to an uncompromising position and assess police work objectively.
“Quality journalism is a real weapon that renders any criminal impotent. I am confident that our joint work on information support for the fight against law offences will get stronger and broader with every passing year,” the minister said.
He stressed that the active position of mass media to cover the Interior Ministry reform helps build public confidence in police. “Such confidence is a necessary key to solving many tasks concerning law, order and public security in the country,” he said.
“The Interior Ministry is as open in its work as it can be and is committed to constructive dialogue with mass media,” he added.
